Pensby Runners started out as road runners before diversifying into many other areas of the sport. Road running is still a largely popular aspect of what we do however. We have an annual Road Race League which comprises of 10 races over a variety of distances from 5K to half marathons.
The series is made up of, 2 x half marathons, 2 x 10 miles, 2 x 10k , 2 x 5 miles and 2 x 5k runs.
Points are awarded for every race and the best 7 results for each runner will count.
An extra 10 points will be awarded to any runner who competes in at least 1 race of each length. i.e. 1 x half, 1 x 10ml, 1 x 10k, 1 x 5ml and 1 x 5k.
You have to be a fully paid up member (1st or 2nd claim) of Pensby Runners to take part. The wearing of the Pensby vest is mandatory.
You must be eligible to run for Pensby in the race.
Points will be awarded according to relative finishing positions. 15 points are awarded for the first Pensby runner to finish, 14 for second, and so on down to 3 points. If more than 13 members compete in any one race then the maximum number will be adjusted accordingly e.g. 14 runners then 16 points for first. One point will be awarded for any member who starts a race but does not finish.
